Bringing your family dog to Singapore shouldn’t be a frustrating process so long as you understand the guidelines and plan ahead of time. You’ll need to know the quarantine requirement in Singapore for dogs importation, in order to make your travel experience run smoothly. Here are some of the basic details in regard to dog importation in Singapore:
Quarantine is a must
Every dog that arrives in Singapore must be transferred to a transit quarantine station and stay there for at least 30 days. You can visit your pet during this time. There are several quarantine stations in Singapore. One of the most common one is sembawang animal quarantine station.
Length of quarantine varies
The length of time your pet stays in quarantine may depend on how your dog responds during the period at the station. If your dog is proven to be healthy, then you’ll get him back in just 30 days. The quarantine period is usually meant to observe your pet and if the veterinarian suspects he has rabies then the length of time in quarantine may be increased.
Keeping your dog in Singapore
Singapore can get really hot and your dog is prone to skin conditions due to the weather. You’ll need to ask your vet to advice you on how to prevent skin conditions that may attack your dog. It could mean showering your dog once every week or more regularly than you are used to. You may also not be allowed to travel with your dog by public transport.
Remember also that Singapore is one of the cleanest cities in the world and the law requires you to clean up after your dog. So carry a non-transparent plastic bag which you can use to collect your dog’s faeces from the streets.
